Fun fact: the Fountain of Youth marks the spot where 16th century Spanish explorer, Ponce de Leon, first landed when visiting America. Not long after his arrival, the oldest successful European settlement in the United States was established and later became known as St. Augustine.

The park expands across 15 waterfront acres, making it the perfect place to take a stroll or lounge and read a book. General admission tickets are at $19.95 per adult, $9.95 for children aged 6-12, and free for children 5 and under. 

Tip: Be sure to stop by and visit the fountain itself. Legends say that the healing waters from the fountain work to preserve your youth.
